Hi.... With the above described regimen, is it at all risky to add Zyban to quit smoking? I guess it just seems like a lot of different meds for one liver to metabolize...

Response from Dr. Henry

Sustiva may decrease the effectiveness of atorvastatin. There has not been good data on use of Zyban with Sustiva-there is a potential for an interaction. I have had several patients on bupropion and Sustiva who I monitored more carefully who seemed to do OK. KH
